      Philippa Hawker The Age (Australia) Julia's Eyes becomes a little incoherent as it plunges towards resolution, but it's unerringly stylish and whole-heartedly suspenseful along the way. Rated: 3/5 Jun 2, 2011 Full Review Philip French Guardian A fascinating, broken-backed picture full of riveting twists and dubious psychology. May 23, 2011 Full Review Anthony Quinn Independent (UK) Rated: 3/5 May 20, 2011 Full Review Covadonga G. Lahera Sensacine A film with no personality. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 1.5/5 Sep 19, 2019 Full Review Jordi Batlle Caminal Fotogramas A sharp visual treat. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Sep 19, 2019 Full Review Naila Scargill Exquisite Terror Several plot twists keep us guessing, however this device is overused and the final of these is bizarre, undoing much of the work accomplished.

      Laurian D A good thriller which could have been much better with a more rewarding final act. Half way into the movie I was able to guess what's going on and I kept hoping that there would be a smart twist waiting to blow me away in the finale. It wasn't the case though. The movie is good though, and the final shot was clever, poetic and memorable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/25/23 Full Review Leonard E Great thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end. The final act is when things get really good. First and second act you're wondering what exactly is going on but in a good way, movie keeps you intrigued. Surprised this movie isn't as popular, its pretty darn good. A lot better than other movies out there, not really horror or scary but great thriller. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/17/22 Full Review kyle c This is a damn good thriller through and through. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire second half (okay not literally; I was lounging on the couch, but I was tense!). Is romance-horror a genre? Rom-hor? I'm coining it: that's what this movie is. This film does an amazing job of keeping audiences guessing. It provides just enough ambiguity to be hard to predict without succumbing to being a black-box mystery. I also love the way it portrays blindness as a life-altering tragedy but not as something to be disrespected or to make one helpless. The framing of shots from the point of view of our occasionally-mostly-blind protagonist are impressive, especially the way that characters' faces are obscured from the camera when she can't see them either. It's a very clever way to draw out the mystery. My only complaint is that it feels tropey at times, almost like a soap opera; we've got twin sisters, cheating husbands, estranged children, imposters, and mysterious physical ailments. All that's missing is for a character to come back from the dead by inhabiting another character's body! But in all seriousness, most of the twists are really really good, but near the end a few of them feel forced. Julia's Eyes is a seriously thrilling ride, even if its twists occasionally feel unnatural. For fans of horror and thrillers, especially those who can appreciate a solid romance story, this is an easy one to recommend. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Late R There's some strong visuals going on here (especially towards the end) and the initial idea is terrifying, but it only really works for the middle act and part of the third act. The first act has an interesting setup that consists of a whodunit/murder mystery, but towards the end it strays a little into unbelievable territory, although the ending itself is pretty great. The weakest part of the film is, without a doubt, the dramatic side of things that attempts to emotionally invest the audience in the characters and relationships, but does a poor job. Overall it's well-acted, nicely shot and has a great idea, but the execution could have been better. Nevertheless, there are some superb scenes that are as tense as they are scary, and for those alone it's probably worth giving it a shot. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/26/20 Full Review Liam D A chilling movie this thriller is like I said not as good as The Orphanage but it's still a very good movie. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 09/21/20 Full Review Audience Member Overlong, contrived and melodramatic, this is okay in parts but too often feels like something lifted from an eighties slasher.
